1  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: TRICO Wiper Blade Design Changeover in 1969 on: Today at 07:25:47 AM
Hey Lloyd, A lot of parts had design changes between Dec 68 and Jan 69, then we see some of the parts bleeding over into Feb at least as old parts were being used up, rear spoilers, wood steering wheels, kick panels, etc. Maybe these were part of those changes.

Chris, most Camaro air cleaners were 60% gloss enamel, then baked (not the chrome ones Smiley) They should be a little glossier then the 30% gloss inner fenders, rad support etc. Take everything off that unbolts, then paint it a black semi-gloss, that is close. The underside of lid was painted too. Then get some correct decals and apply Smiley

For WW2 paintings and Egyptian relics, the trend now is get them returned to their rightful families/countries/museums.

Back to the vette.  So the insurance company owns it, but cannot prove it by producing the title.  Then the state auctions it off like other stolen property.  Does it get a new title and/or Vin? Anyone buy a stolen vehicle from gov auctions and know the process?

That car has been resto-modded much, not much original left Smiley  I guess for that price, The dealer paid for the ZZ502 Cheesy I doubt they will break even on ebay.  Thanks William!

Been snowy and cold for a couple winters in NJ.  Global warming means the the average surface temperature of the earth is going up by about 1 degree.  does not sound like a lot.  But you have to remember, that 1 degree causes  UNPREDICTABLE swings in climate!  more snow. less snow, more drought, wetter areas, etc then before.  So while the southwest is getting drier, the northeast is getting wetter (more rain and snow). Remember, if you do not like the weather, wait a bit, it will change Cheesy

The red section was probably to protect the rough edges from abrading the carpet.

#14 are the hex head screws

The Pace car pic has some interesting things in it (if you can tear you eyes away from the candy Smiley).  The D90 stripe appears to be wavy from the factory, when the side decal (I assume a decal instead pf paint because of the rippling above the rear wheel well) was installed, they followed the wave on the front fender, which really highlighted the wave.  CB antenna mount on the trunk lid, trim rings with dog dish wheels.  And what is that black tape thing on the peak of the hood? a wind string?

2 blondes, a redhead and a brunette, the marketing dept was working it! Smiley

Looks like a starter brace and solenoid wiring holder
11  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Window Guide Plates on: January 07, 2015, 07:15:39 AM
I used water proofed denim material to reface mine. The are attached to a metal edge behind the fuzzy strip (when looking from inside the car), by 2 small flat head phillips sheet metal screws. There should be one near exterior door handle and one forward.  There will be two plastic bumps attached to window glass that ride against these, measure where those are to get the location on the door.

What is up with that rear spring mount???  The spring mounts are deep multis as well as the multi shock plate, they are all correct, but it looks like they left old spring pads or spacers in there.  why would they do that? If they mounted them correctly, it would raised the rear up to a more proper level.  And of course the upside down cowl seal, tsk.
13  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Value of a set of 14 x 6 rally wheels-complete on: January 02, 2015, 07:51:40 AM
Subscribing to this as well. since XN is drum only (I have 4 XN on my car) is a limited market.  I would assume the dates matter since keeping the 4 drum system really only happens for a numbers matching car.
14  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Windshield Washer Nozzle Cement on: November 25, 2014, 06:43:36 AM
Yup, that is what I used as well.  Take a hunk, knead it until soft, press it in Smiley 
15  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 1969 X66 SS Headlight Bezels? on: October 23, 2014, 10:51:49 AM
http://www.camaros.org/exterior.shtml#1969Grille  It should be a black grill with black bezels for a 69 SS. Since it is an X66 (no style trim), they would NOT have the chrome ring on the bezels.
ALL 69 SS's have bright headlamp trimmed bezels.
http://www.camaros.org/numbers.shtml#XnnCodes
This report states that the X55 and X66 carry the same features in regards to headlamp bezels...
My P&A has a note for the bezels (painted)
Does anyone have a part number for black bezels or were they all manufactured in Grey and paint as required?

Thanks, yes, I see that now, confusing! Smiley thx
